I wouldn't buy any kind of chemical (Hartz or otherwise) and put it
on my animals!

Good nutrition also can help prevent pests and skin irritations.
I like and recommend Muenster Natural dog food and the dietary
supplement called The Missing Link.....add natural diatomaceous
earth to the pet food if it isn't in the food.

Also, put 1 teaspoon Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (maybe more
depending on the size of the water dish).
[HP102 Raw Honey + Raw Apple Cider Vinegar Pre-Mixed - 1 - 16 oz.
bottle of the product described above $6.00]

(I use this Apple Cider Vinegar to help me lose weight as well by
taking 1-2 table spoons in 8 ounces of my favorite juice before
eating)

IF you have Organic Gardening stores near you, you shouldn't have
any problems finding the above locally
